Mega grids span several continents and may consist of millions of nodes and billions of tasks executing at any point in time. This setup calls for scalable and highly available resource utilization control that adapts itself to dynamic changes in the grid environment as they occur. In this paper, we address the problem of enforcing upper bounds on the consumption of grid resources. We propose a grid-wide quota enforcement system, called GWiQ-P. GWiQ-P is light-weight, and in practice is infinitely scalable, satisfying concurrently any number of resource demands, all within the limits of a global quota assigned to each user. GWiQ-P adapts to dynamic changes in the grid as they occur, improving future performance by means of improved locality. This improved performance does not impair the system's ability to respond to current requests, tolerate failures, or maintain the allotted quota levels.
